    hi there, anon! i’m fully aware that the movie came well before the musical, but being first does not imply being right. (if it did, then the doctor would be characterised incorrectly in all but season one of doctor who, bender and professor farnsworth would have the wrong voices from season four onwards, etc.)

    i deem the characterisation in the movie “wrong”, relative to the musical’s, for several reasons:

    first, it just doesn’t seem as good. that’s obviously subjective, but i for one think a veronica who’ll remove a ticking bomb from a school to save others, absolutely believing that she won’t survive, and who’s visibly and audibly disturbed by a man exploding immediately in front of her is a significantly more relateable person than one with neither of those properties.

    even leaving out such subjective judgements, the film’s characterisation also seems simply inconsistent. for example, jd’s decision to, quoting from the article, “[climb] into [veronica’s] room with a revolver to kill her” is markedly incongruous with his motivations throughout the rest of the plot, since jd’s entire shtick is that he lives to protect veronica, in a crazed overzealous way.

    that’s just my thoughts on the matter though!

  2. i looked up heathers on wikipedia and

the movie feels like bad fanfic of the musical where everyone is characterised really wrong????

like good lord, veronica, what’s your damage
